Naylor doubled off Junior Fernandez in the ninth inning and scored on a Bradley Zimmer single. He has doubled in back-to-back games. The 24-year-old is slashing .255/.305/.397 with five home runs, 15 RBI and 22 runs in 197 plate appearances.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Records three hits while homering
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 3-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Naylor provided all the offense Cleveland was able to muster in this one, as he took Ross Stripling deep in the fifth inning for his fifth long ball of the campaign. The right fielder is trying to bounce back from an ugly stretch, as he entered this game with just one hit over his previous 16 at-bats.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

Cleveland will load up on some extra right-handed bats with southpaw J.A. Happ on the hill for Minnesota. The right-handed Jordan Luplow will draw into the Cleveland outfield in place of the lefty-hitting Naylor.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Late home run powers Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Angels.

Naylor had a single in the first and came up clutch late in the game when he gave Cleveland the lead with a solo home run in the eighth inning. The long ball proved to be the difference in the game as he raised his slash line to .265/.307/.424 with four home runs, 12 RBI and 17 runs scored.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Goes deep in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Friday's loss to Seattle.

Naylor scored Cleveland's first run in the fifth inning, then made the final score a little closer with a two-run blast in the ninth. The three-hit game was his third of the season. He is slashing .274/.315/.427 with three homers, 16 runs and 10 RBI across 124 plate appearances.

Indians' Josh Naylor: On base four times Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in Saturday's 9-2 win over the Reds.

The 23-year-old continues to string together hits, going 13-for-40 (.325) over his last 11 games with two homers, six RBI and eight runs, but the walks were a pleasant surprise as Naylor had drawn only four in 28 games on the season coming into Saturday. The hot streak has pushed his slash line up to .265/.312/.412 as he looks to give the Cleveland outfield a consistent threat it's been lacking in recent years.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Stuffs box score Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-4 win over Kansas City.

Naylor reached on an error in the fifth inning and eventually got to third base on his first stolen base of the season. He picked up an RBI with a groundout in the sixth inning, then followed up with a solo shot in the ninth. Naylor has gone 11-for-30 (.367) with two homers, six RBI and six runs scored in his last eight games. He's slashing .272/.309/.435 through 97 plate appearances this season. As long as he continues to play well, manager Terry Francona will likely find a spot for his bat in the lineup.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Clubs first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a home run and three RBI in Monday's 8-6 win over the Royals.

His two-run blast off Jakob Junis in the seventh inning proved to be the key hit in the game, giving Cleveland an 8-3 lead. It was Naylor's first homer of the year, but the 23-year-old seems to be finding his rhythm at the plate, going 8-for-22 over the last six games with four doubles in addition to Monday's long ball.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians' Josh Naylor: Three-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 3-for-4 with a double and a pair of singles in Monday's 5-3 extra-inning win over the Twins.

Naylor produced his second three-hit game of the year. The 23-year-old utilityman has settled into a near-everyday role at first base after Jake Bauers and Yu Chang both struggled to start the season. Naylor is slashing .258/.290/.348 with no home runs, no stolen bases, two RBI and four runs scored through 69 plate appearances. In addition to first base, he can also play in the corner outfield positions.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Cincinnati.

Naylor has a .255/.286/.340 slash line through 13 games and will take a seat Sunday with lefty Wade Miley starting for the Reds. Franmil Reyes will start in right field since Cleveland won't have a designated hitter in a National League park.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Three-hit effort Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 3-for-4 with a double and two singles in Friday's 10-3 loss to the Reds.

Naylor was effective at the plate, but he couldn't drive in any runs or score in the contest. The right fielder/first baseman is slashing .273/.289/.364 with no homers, no RBI, three runs scored and no stolen bases in 12 games. He's likely to see most of the playing time in right field, although Franmil Reyes or Jordan Luplow are also in the mix at the position.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers.

Naylor had started every game for Cleveland to begin the season and went 5-for-22 with two doubles, one run and six strikeouts. Jordan Luplow will lead off and play right field during Saturday's matchup.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Singles twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 2-for-4 with two singles in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Kansas City.

The outfielder has now hit safely in four of five games this season, standing out in the middle of an otherwise unremarkable Cleveland lineup. Naylor struggled to the tune of a .230 average after being dealt from San Diego last season, but his bat has shown promise thus far in 2021 and he looks locked into a starting role.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Looks like everyday player
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor will start in right field and bat seventh Monday against the Royals.

The lefty-hitting Naylor has now started in each of Cleveland's first four games, with three of those assignments coming against southpaws. Cleveland appears to be using a platoon of Ben Gamel and Jordan Luplow in center field, but Naylor and Eddie Rosario look to have clear paths to everyday roles at the corner spots. Through his first three games, Naylor has gone 3-for-12 with a pair of doubles and a run.

Indians' Josh Naylor: Atop RF depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor is the leading candidate to be Cleveland's Opening Day right fielder, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Cleveland has played Naylor exclusively in the outfield this spring as Jake Bauers and Bobby Bradley compete for the first base job. Naylor could find himself on the strong side of a platoon, but the job appears to be his to lose. He's hitting .214/.267/.357 with zero home runs, two strikeouts and one walk in 14 at-bats during Cactus League play. Prospect Daniel Johnson has outperformed Naylor thus far, but all indications are that Johnson will get more seasoning in the minors to start the year.
